What is an Integration User?
An Integration User refers to an API only user that is responsible for carrying out data manipulation tasks and to access Salesforce data to encourage data security and Salesforce best practices.
If you have more than one system and you want it to talk to salesforce, in the past, you’d have to have a license allocated to providing the authentication between multiple systems.
Why is this useful?
- Limits user access
- Increases data security
- Better traceability of transactions
- Streamlines system-to –system integrations
- Can be added to new or existing users
- Encourages one user per integration
- Frees up licenses for actual humans
Essentially, the Salesforce Integration User enables an API permission set license that is intended to enhance and/or limit user/object permissions that
work together with other user-controlled permission sets. This yields customized data sub-set access which in turn increases data security.
Not to mention that as of March 14, 2023 Salesforce is offering 5 free Integration User licenses and $10* for each license after
those have been used up
